Last year SIAM initiated a new Member Get a Member program to encourage SIAM members to invite their colleagues to join SIAM. For every member who referred a colleague who subsequently joined SIAM as a new member between April 4, 2011 and December 31, 2011, both the person making the referral and the new member were entered into a drawing to win a prize. The drawing was held January 30, 2012. The following names were randomly selected from all those eligible to win a prize:
Britto Antony Xavier G of Sacred Heart College in Velore, India won an additional year of SIAM membership. Britto was referred by his colleage SIAM member Dilip D S.
Tiangang Cui of Massachusetts Institute of Technology won a free registration to the SIAM conference of his choice. Tiangang referred his colleague Nick Dudley Ward who joined SIAM as a result.
